The Outlook

Stanley is coming off a poor performance in a weak field at the John Deere Classic, during which he hit just 58.3% of the greens in regulation. That’s not an encouraging sign considering how tough Carnoustie (nicknamed “Carnasty” by the players) is likely to be. He has poor history at the British Open and doesn’t seem to possess the short game to really contend here. His long-term talent is better than his DFS price tag, but this just isn’t a great fit for him.

The Metrics

Here’s how Stanley ranks in the British Open field in several key metrics. For many more, be sure to check out the FantasyLabs PGA Models.
